A FAVORITE FIRST stop for a first sip and first bite in Sonoma wine country, Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards was founded by the Ferrer family of Spain as Sonoma Carneros’ first sparkling wine house. Today, the winery is California’s most awarded sparkling wine house with more than 500 Gold medals and 50 outstanding 90-plus point ratings in the past five years.
But it’s more than wine that attracts guests to this splendid property. The treelined drive leads them to a festive and gracious Spanish-style manor where they are warmly greeted. When guests walk out to the winery’s Vista Terrace overlooking the vineyards and beyond, many are content to stay put and sample the wines, while others have planned ahead and booked more immersive experiences. For example, there’s Bubbles and Bites, a private tour followed by a guided pairing of seasonal bites and wines, and Gloria’s Wine Country Picnic, a private, intimate picnic experience overlooking the vineyard.
Here’s another interesting thing to note: Gloria Ferrer, for whom the winery is named, has a passion for collecting wine glasses. The winery has an amazing display of just some of her glass wine flutes, and there’s even a Glassware Exploration experience that demonstrates how a glass can enhance the flavors of a wine.
